Friday, March 18, 2016: (St. Cyril of Jerusalem)
Jesus said: “My people, the people of My day did not understand how the Son of God could take on a human body. This Incarnation of My human body is a mystery in itself, but it enabled Me to sacrifice My Body in death for the reparation of all the sins of mankind. No longer is it necessary for sacrificing animals, because I became the ultimate sacrifice for everyone, as I brought salvation to all repentant sinners. The people wanted to stone Me because they thought I was committing blasphemy when I claimed to be God’s Son. But I really am the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, and when I resurrected from the dead, My apostles had the ultimate proof in this miracle. You are about to enter Holy Week, and there are many graces given to those people who take part in the Holy Week services. Rejoice with the angels and saints who praise Me constantly. In every Mass you are commemorating My sacrifice on the cross, as you eat My Body and drink My Blood. You have the grace of My Blessed Sacrament given to you every time that you receive Me in Holy Communion. Be grateful that I have left you with My Real Presence by the priest’s hands in the Mass. I am with you always to help you on your way to heaven.”
